Well ya, but I mean it could be a significant difference. It's still a tolerable speed :P

That sucks though about the putting it in its own program though. So that basically means this is an automatic 36KB bigger, right?

Yes and no. The pokemon sprites were already part of the game, 17k, as were the names, which was another 1300 bytes or so. The hurt was the 1k of weight and height data, and the 14k or so of text for the pokedex entries.

The speed for both is still very acceptable and not heavy on graphics either :) Melikes ^^

Thanks, I tried to make sure that it was at its fastest, I am sure there are things that can be done to it to make it faster, but not truly important now, just got to make the entire game work first. In the end, the 83+ won't be able to play this game anyways.

Does the sprites uses hacked pics? I forgot how you stored them in more recent builds. I am asking cuz with hacked pics, you may want to try using the ones that can be ungrouped safely on a computer running aversion of Windows older than Vista (that supports fewer special chars in file names)

Also I wonder if you think regular 84+ support will be possible?

all the sprite data is in the form of hacked hex, basically, and displayed using a special program from benryves to recognize my special character I use.

As to 84+, it is something we shall see pending how much memory I end up using. *shrugs* I have no real idea at this time, only thing I can promise is that it will be on the SE calcs.

Ah ok, so about 15KB then?

yeah, pokemon goes up roughly another 15k or so. :p

Once I get it so you can get your pokemon and such, I will see about going through and updating the program memory list, to get a total on what is being used. I am sure it is over 100k now.

Not too bad so far, considering it's Pokémon in TI-BASIC with few ASM used.

How complete is it? Your sig says 10% but I don't know if that's up to date. And do you mean once you get it to where you get the starters? Or talking about different ones.

I would guestimate it being around 15%? give or take, it's really hard to tell with the scope and complexity that this game represents.

I am contemplating making the events list be based in an app var, due to memory reasons. A 150 element list takes up roughly 1500 bytes while a program with around 150 '0s' takes up around 300 bytes. Kind of a no brainer in that regard, and I can read the data from the appvar from flash, and only have to unarchive it occasionally, instead of like a list and having it in RAM to read.

Not sure I want to do this with the pokedex yet or not. It could potentially slow down the program significantly since it has to call for each instance of the name showing up. The event setup wouldn't be a massive blow on speed, since it gets called every once in a while.

Just some more idle contemplations on my part I guess, to help lower memory usage.

Thoughts?

That could work, but would it be hard to fetch the data? Would you be using Celtic II for that? I know the Asm command is also very slow when you have several subprograms x.x
